How best to sing the praises of this stylish stranded pullover? Scofidio elevates its one-by-one colorwork by playing with proportion and personalization, welcoming the knitter to dream in color and engage with their inner artist. Work every row of the upper body in a unique contrasting color to best express yourself, or cater to your chic closet with modern neutrals and a monochromatic palette. Purl dashes accent the colorwork columns with a punctuation of texture and contrast, continuing down the shoulder into the dropped sleeves. Stitches are picked up for the collar then folded over to finish for a satisfying and balanced neckline.
